Students respond to Pope Francis’ call for a ‘Marathon of Prayer’
During the past month, St Mary’s students have responded to Pope Francis’ call for a ‘Marathon of Prayer’ to bring about an end to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic, which has seen so many people in our own country fall sick, and sadly, many thousands have died, is now really affecting our poorest sisters and brothers across the world.
During the month of May, Catholics have been asked to pray the Rosary in order to bring about the end to the suffering of communities across the world. Saying prayers asking for Our Lady’s help, including praying the Rosary, is common practice in Catholic schools in the months of May and October, but this year Pope Francis has asked us all to double our efforts.
Thank you to all the Year 7 students who participated in the making of this special video encouraging us all to join the this special ‘Marathon of Prayers’.
